http://www.qvcuk.com/ukqic/qvcapp.aspx/ ... tem.588920 - just got these today wow they are lovely, trees, owls, fancy swirls, and flowers - wow not a bad price for 3 pages of good sized stamps
I am delighted with them so just thought id let you all in on a bargain
I am going to stamp and then emboss with clear and heat - then colour should be lovely and owls are in just now, dont ask me why they just are.

Hello Princess

i've seen those stamps before and dawns items are always a bargain.

I've thought about gettin these and also the patchwork pals caravan stamps that matched the tsv on the 27th Dec. My problem with stamping is how to colour them in. I use gel pens but they are not always appropriate. It showed on the caravan samples they were coloured in with something like metalic waterpaints. Hope you dont mind me asking how and what you colour yours in.

I stopped using stamps for this reason and went into buying cds and also a die cutter but these can be expensive.

I spent a fortune on QVC a few months back with card making stuff!

I got a sizzix big shot and a handbag looking embossing thingy, yet to do something with them, can't wait.

I made lots of christmas cards and gave loads to the local hospital to sell, i went back a week later, they'd nearly all gone and at £1.50 each thought it was great, gonna do other cards for them soon, get well cards, fathers day, mothers day, valentines, birthday etc. nice to give something back.

Hi,

Firstly i'm new to the forum and have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I love crafting. I mostly do cardmaking and ATCs but have done jewellery before and am thinking of trying some altered art. I have way too many craft items but always find room for more :D

I do stamping too and use Sakura gelly Roll pens, Twinkling H2o's and chalks to colour my images. I also have some Derwent Inktense pencils which are good. A lot of people (as i'm on Craft Forums too) use Copic markers but these are very expensive.

Hope to chat to all again soon and probably swap ideas/hints etc :lol:

Hi

I'm finding that i'm using more and more cd's to print my images.

I like my die cutting machine but it is time consuming, it takes ages to make one card.

If anyone has got any thing they dont want then please pm me.
cds, or decoupage, or anything as i make and donate to our local hospice, so anything i can get my hands on is usefull.
Do you think we should have a craft area on the forum?
I have just got a few cds from e-bay thats th best way to buy.
Sharon duncan from Dundee her cds are just wonderful, very easy to use and very very nice patterns etc., and always something vry unusual at hte end of each cd.
£14.99 i think she has her own site.

Hi again,

Sharon Duncan does have her own site and comes up if you just Google her name.

The same with Joanna Sheen who also does some fab CD's. I've got a pad of her lace papers and they are so lush :D

You can sign up on both to receive their newsletters which are good and you can also win crafty goodies by entering comps :)

Have a fab day :wave:

You get a clear ink pad for embossing - and then you put embossing powder on top and heat it with your heat gun.
I only use clear embossing powder as you can use your own ink pads if you are fast and get just as good a result.

No not a glue pen i think that would burn. The clear pads are only about £1.30 in the craft shops if you just ask for one and explain wha tyou want it for ok
